Fencing (post 2)

Watching Sada Jacobson in the round of 16 now against the Ukranian (Olga Khorlan).  Great match – Sada came from a big deficit and had an amazing parry riposte to tie it at 9-9 a moment ago.  She’s leading 11-9 now…

The crowd is in the background – clearly chearing for the Americans (You hear “SADA”… “SADA”… in the background almost continually – as you heard the chants for Mariel when she was fencing).  Its great to hear people cheering for fencing 🙂

14-13 now – Sada wins every point she is moving around for but when she stays in the center and tries to go toe to toe with Khorlan, she loses.

She’s won it – 15-13.  Sada advances to the quarterfinals.

I’m going to try to stay awake for the quarterfinals… but then I’m not sure I’ll be able to get up in the morning for the semis and the medal round.  But its been amazing fencing – I just might have to watch it all.
